Goal

Single Sign On (SSO) or LDAP or SAML or other types of authentication can be implemented for InfoManager/InfoCenter.  The documentation for implementing custom authentication is here.

A general best practice is to put debug statements that print information to the instance/standard out log in the application instance directory.  This way when there are problems debug can be enabled and the problem can be understood.

How can the options within InfoCenter that permit the user to change their first/last name, forgot/change password etc. be disabled?  This paramaeter changes the flow of the jsp pages if custom iauth is used.

REMOTE_AUTHENTICATION_ENABLED=10;true

in the Infomanager config.

When the session timesout the logout_URL has to have a link so that the user is redirected to the correct page.
